Help Me Send My Father Home to Rest

Dear family, friends and all people of good will;

My father Elly Okomo (69) and mum flew from Kenya to Atlanta, Georgia to attend my graduation and we spent three lovely weeks catching up on the last three years we've been apart. They were also overjoyed to meet our new born who we'd welcomed five months before my graduation.

Heartbreakingly, on Thursday May the 25th dad suffered a heart attack and died while being rushed to the hospital. Our family requires your assistance in raising the USD$20,000  (Ksh. 2.06 Million) required to pay for the rising morgue fees and for taking the body back home in Kenya from Atlanta. We greatly appreciate any contribution you are able to make.
